We had a few sunny days here but we’re still in the middle of winter. So what can you do to get rid of the winter blues? Spend some time with beautiful blooming flowers!
The Oak Park Conservatory is a hidden gem. You can view three large greenhouses for a suggested donation of $2. I was just there Saturday to practice photography and absolutely loved it! In addition to the plants, they have a small pond with koi and two red-ear slider turtles as well as several bird cages. There were numerous families and a few retired couples which only confirms that it’s a great place for people of all ages.
You can view all of my Oak Park Conservatory photos on flickr but here are some of my favorite shots:
